Indonesia

Rippling across the equator for nearly 5000km, Indonesia encompasses more than 17,000 islands.

Garden Bungalows

Their most basic (if you could call it that) Garden Bungalows are air-conditioned, two-level units on the south side of Dhonveli Island Maldives, just a few meters from the Pasta Point surf break. The thatched-roof bungalows are surrounded by tropical gardens and each one has a private balcony, where you can enjoy cool breezes and island views. Each Garden Bungalow has its own separate entrance, and is a short stroll from the restaurant, swimming pool, bars, and spa.

Upstairs on the mezzanine level, the main bedroom is stylishly furnished with king-sized bed, white linen sheets, natural timber finishes and tropical decor. Downstairs, facilities include fridge, mini-bar, tea/coffee making, and space for your luggage. The sitting room provides writing desk, chairs, satellite-cable TV and telephone. The day bed and couch can be made up as single beds for additional family members or surfing mates.

The resort accommodates up to 250 guests, but the number of surfers is limited to just 30. Facilities include a spa, open-air restaurants, three bars (one overlooking Pasta Point), wi-fi internet access, swimming pool, billiards, tennis court, badminton, gym, safe beach for children, and a fully certified PADI Diving School. With a white sand beach and plenty to do for non-surfing partners and children, it’s a great place to relax or to holiday with the family.

Pasta Point, the region’s most consistent break, is just a minute’s walk from your room. Other classic breaks such as Sultans, Honky’s and Jailbreaks are less than ten minutes away by boat. You can see the waves from Cinnamon, so you’ll know when they’re pumping. No matter what the conditions are, you’re in the perfect spot. Boats are available throughout the day, from 6am for those who want a solid session before breakfast. The team make morning and afternoon trips to Chickens and Colas (about 45 minutes away) when conditions are favourable. All boats have radio communication with each other for the latest information on surf conditions, surfer numbers and as a safety precaution.

Food and Drink

The open-air Makana Restaurant serves an international buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For those who like to try the local foods, and particularly enjoy a curry, the Maldivian dishes are highly recommended. Right at the water’s edge, the Raiyvilaa Bar opens daily from 8am till late at night. It’s the place to enjoy a fancy cocktail on the open deck as the sun sets on another tropical island day. The Raalhu Bar, overlooking the break at Pasta Point, is the ideal place to watch the action or retreat for a cool beer after a long day in the surf. It’s open from 6am till late at night.

The Chavana Spa offers a range of health and beauty treatments – for surfers we especially recommend the Muscle Ease massage.

If you can’t bring your own board, or you can’t face the hassle, their Surf Shop offers a range of Surftech, Tuflite & NSP surfboards for hire at very reasonable rates.

Reviews of Garden Bungalows

As you know I have just returned from Dhonvelli Isand in the Maldives once again once I was on the island everything was perfect, accommodation (Garden Bungalow) was exactly what we needed as we were travelling with a child, the food as always was fantastic and the staff were superb.

We have just arrived back from our Pasta Point/Dhonvelli Maldives trip and wanted to thank you for arranging. This is an amazing place, surf was excellent ranging from 4-7ft throughout with offshore winds. We surfed Sultan's all week, a long peeling right ! As a rest we would switch to Pasta which is a really really fast left. The team from Dhonveli are fantastic, nothing is a trouble and they make the surfers very welcome. The accommodation is right next to the wave. It is a little tired but we didn't go to sit in it anyway. Food is excellent and better than the other surf resorts I have stayed in. This was my 7th trip to the Maldives and this surpasses the other resort islands.

Chris -

Had a really good trip. Surfed a super fun wave with only a handful of other surfers in the water. Were a bit unlucky with the wind conditions but had waves every day. Amazing food at the resort and helpful friendly staff. Will certainly go back there. No complaints!
